You can tell this book/set is primarily aimed at children, as the guide explains even the simplest things in detail with easy to follow diagrams step-by-step, all the way. The clay itself is in very small blocks, perhaps around the size of my little finger, (Although I wasn't expecting them to be big as I'd read a previous post about the size of them before ordering). And the simple fact it was a charm kit, I wasn't expecting to make anything huge either. The set itself I'd describe as an introduction to charm making, as you'd need to 'top up' clay and buy better tools if it's something that you enjoy doing, but personally, I found the old love I had for plasterciene, 'rekindled'. And my 13, and 18 year old came in the kitchen as I was opening it and joined in making things. Small items can be a little fiddly, but it's nothing major either, my hands can be quite shaky due to my health, and even I've manage to make cute things in the book, as well as some of my own. (We never really grow up do we? *Smiles*) The only downfall with the kit is that the colours are pressed together which can blend the colours a little, it's not a major issue however, you can scratch it off with the enclosed tool, and re-wrap them individually with clingfilm. But, honestly you can't complain for the price if it's something you want to give a go.
